Urolithiasis in Pregnancy – A Clinical Review

Emmanuel O Abara

Abstract


Urolithiasis in not rare in women of childbearing age, however, its occurrence in pregnancy is uncommon. The clinical presentation may not be straightforward, as there are a variety of obstetrical and surgical problems that qualify as part of the differential diagnosis. This can lead to delay in the treatment, which in turn can threaten the pregnancy and lead to renal impairment.
